Canon Australia has been releasing videos as part of their series, "The Lab," which is designed to inspire photographers to experiment and think outside the box. Their latest video robs photographers of their most used sense, sight.
In the video below, three professional photographers are blindfolded and consume a spoonful of three different meals created by an artist in another field, chef Clayton Wells, who is the head chef at Australian restaurant Automata.
The trio of photographers were tasked with blindly enjoying the meals and then creating a single image that captured what they experienced. Not only that, two of the photographers created portraits to try to capture their sensory experience during the meal. What sort of visual experiences do people have without the use of their sight? What does a taste or feeling look like when it is transformed into a single still image? Find out in the video below.
It is always interesting to see how different artists go through their creative process and how people perform when presented with a unique challenge. To see the rest of the videos Canon has produced for "The Lab," click here.
